Frederick Moyer: A classical and jazz piano recital
November 7 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$25.00
Back for a third year! By popular demand, world-class pianist Fred Moyer and his Moyercam returns to the Arts Center.
Musical connections between the genres of classical and jazz music are often overlooked. Perhaps that’s why Fred’s classical-jazz concert program continues to be one of his most popular offerings. Fred begins his classical-jazz concerts with works from the classical repertoire. After intermission, Bob Savine (drummer) and Peter Tillotson (bassist) join Fred on stage to recreate and reinterpret performances of the trios of such jazz greats as Oscar Peterson, Bill Evans, Errol Garner, and Herbie Hancock.
Both classical and jazz fans have embraced Fred’s classical-jazz concerts, and the format has been a revelation to many who would assume that the two styles are incompatible. It’s a combination that brings the audience to its feet every time!
Frederick Moyer began his studies at age seven with his mother, Betsy. Subsequent teachers included Theodore Lettvin, Eleanor Sokoloff, and Menahem Pressler of the Beaux Arts Trio. He attended Curtis Institute of Music and Indiana University. He has since established a career of over thirty-five years as a full-time concert pianist, performing in forty-three countries and in such far-flung venues as Suntory Hall in Tokyo, Sydney Opera House, Windsor Castle, Carnegie Recital Hall, Tanglewood, and the Kennedy Center. He has appeared as a piano soloist with most of the major orchestras of the United States as well as many orchestras of Europe, Asia, South America, Africa, and Australia.
